Gianforte argues against mugshot or fingerprints for assault charge

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Congressman-elect Greg Gianforte does not want to have his mug shot or fingerprints taken.

The Bozeman politician pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault for the attack on The Guardian's Ben Jacobs on Monday.

After his sentencing, Gianforte was told to go to the Gallatin County Detention Center to have his mug shot taken and fingerprints recorded.

Gianforte and his legal team say he is not legally required to do either and filed a motion Friday afternoon to prevent the instruction.

The documents argue that Gianforte should not be required to follow the order because he was never arrested, was not charged with a felony and has his case was solely dealt with in Justice Court.

Mug shots are not released to the public in Gallatin County.
